Thank you for visiting my justgiving page, on the 5th of April 2013, i will be embarking on the hardest journey of my life...


This will involve, Skiing 100 miles in the Last Degree to the North Pole which is a challenging ski expedition crossing the uneven and broken pack ice of the Polar Sea. The forbidding environment is extreme in every way. Temperatures can reach –50 on a windy day and with 24 hours sunlight a day and staying warm is a constant endeavor. The sea ice is always in motion making the terrain unpredictable and difficult to navigate. Whilst you sleep in your tent you can feel and hear the ice moving and breaking below you which can be scary.  Team members will pull all their supplies in personal sleds that can weigh up to 100 pounds. Skiing up to 10 hours a day the team will cross the last degree of latitude before arriving at the Geographic North Pole. At any given moment team members may feel exhilarated and
accomplished, or overwhelmed by difficult terrain. It’s all in a day’s work on this classic expedition.
